The Lusophonic Disappointment of Sciongrad is a colossal, environmentally stunning nation, remarkable for its anti-smoking policies. The compassionate, intelligent population of 5.13 billion Scionites are free to do what they want with their own bodies, and vote for whomever they like in elections; if they go into business, however, they are regulated to within an inch of their lives.

It is difficult to tell where the omnipresent, socially-minded government stops and the rest of society begins, but it juggles the competing demands of Education, the Environment, and Social Welfare. It meets every day to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Villa Real. The average income tax rate is 91%, and even higher for the wealthy. The private sector is almost wholly made up of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, although the government is looking at stamping this out.

Citizens wishing to leave the country must surrender half their wealth to the government, roads are often attended by round-the-clock construction crews, heavy industry grinds to a halt as new equipment must be biked in, and coalition governments are essential to passing new laws. Crime is totally unknown. Sciongrad's national animal is the Elk, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, its national religion is freedom of conscience, and its currency is the Shield.

Sciongrad is ranked 5th in International Democratic Union and 3,781st in the world for Longest Average Lifespans, scoring 39 on the Enoch Index.
